COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Imperial version of our Last Snow porter is a rich, thick, decadent treat. Pitch black and viscous, its made with coconut and fresh roasted coffee. We then age it in Bourbon barrels for months to accentuate the vanilla and coconut notes. Originally brewed in collaboration with our friends at Park Tavern in Delray Beach.

Tognetta (849) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 16, 2017
Muitissimo parecida com a Last Snow com un toque inicialmente pequeno de bourbon que fica mais evidente com o tempo de copo. Totalmente negra turva, espuma marrom de boa formao e mdia persistncia, cremosa. Aroma carregado de coco, em menor intensidade caf e bourbon, muito convidativo. Paladar de dulor intenso e mdio amargor. Corpo licoroso e mdia carbonatao. Final mantm o coco em evidncia misturado com o toque de bourbon, maltada, lembra a xarope de vanilla e caf por ltimo. Deliciosa.

From the bottle at EBF, 2/3/17.
Large, light-tan head is very well-retained atop a cola-tinted, dark-mahogany body with good clarity.
Coffee beans, spicy bourbon, espresso, vanilla and light fudge comprise the aromatic nose. Notably missing is any bit of alcohol/sharpness or overabundance of roast. I dont even get that much of the typical coconut/pina colada that most strong bourbon stouts exhibit. Light toastiness from the base oak, with just a touch of coconut but its folded in to the chocolate and coffee very nicely.
In the mouth, youve got a very dry, wonderfully well-attenuated beer with engaging carbonation, tons of spicy coffee and spice, light barrel tannin and touches of warming coconut-like bourbon liquor. The chocolate-espresso from the malts perfectly balances everything without itself being overbearing. Vanilla, light bourbon, prune-raisin and more chocolate linger long. The finish is not dull and heavy from too much roast/sweetness/alcohol, but rather fruity, spicy and vibrant on account of how dry the beer is. Funky Buddha, it seems, can do no wrong.

22 oz bottle from Juan shared with Tmoney99 and the Nine Giant crew. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma has awesome coffee, coconut, light roast, vanilla, some sweet chocolate. The flavor has more of the same goodness, coconut, coffee light roast, sweet chocolate, light bourbon, dark fruits, cherry, tobacco, the finish has a character like when I used to chew on my grandfathers pipes in the 70s,very interesting and I am glad I had the chance to share/try this with others.
